As part of a county-wide effort to extend winter shelter capacity, Beaverton will host an expanded shelter at the Community Center. The goal is to help accomplish social distancing guidelines to help flatten the curve of COVID-19 among vulnerable populations experiencing homelessness. The expanded shelter will provide a stable, overnight place to sleep and meals 7-days a week to 25 guests. Guests will be screened and enrolled for the duration of the opening, with priority given to high risk populations for COVID-19. This expanded shelter will be offered in collaboration with Just Compassion of East Washington County, Community Action, and Washington County.
